The biggest drawback to an electric motorcycle is the range. (That and the lack of rumble, speed, and testosterone. But mainly it’s the range.) But Brammo is getting close to solving the problem of range with it’s 2011 Enertia Plus.
The 2011 Enertia Plus will double the range of the 2010 model, and will be able to travel 80 miles before it needs to be recharged. So yeah, the electric motorcycle isn’t set for cross country touring just yet, but the Enertia has more than enough juice to get you to and from the office everyday.
The Enertia Plus even comes with optional GIVI hard bags, so you know that Brammo has their eyes set on long distance travel.
The 2011 Enertia Plus will be sold for $8995. Brammo is sweetening the deal by allowing people to place no money-down cancellable pre-orders. They will also pick one of the first 1000 pre-orders to win a free Enertia Plus.
The 2011 Enertia Plus will be revealed on November 2nd at the 68th EICMA in Milan, Italy.
